Emilie Mueller was the oldest child of Louis and Matilda Suhr Mueller. She was born 10 November 1883 in Clayton Township, attended school at National, Iowa, high school at McGregor, and Teachers College at Cedar Falls, Iowa.

She taught Pioneer Country School for four years and would have more older boys in the classroom during the winter months when they did not have to work on the family farms. Emilie was married to Will Matt on 4 February 1909 at the home of her parents in Farmersburg, Iowa. Both Mr. and Mrs. Matt were of a German background and were members of the Lutheran church. They lived on a farm one mile north of National that they bought from Will's father in March of 1909.

Together Emilie and Will had five children:
Doris b. 27 March 1910, m. Erwin Burrack of Arlington, Iowa. Children: Barbara, James, and Tim.
Ruth b. 21 Oct. 1911, m. Harold Huebsch of Strawberry Point, Iowa. Children: William, and Carol.
Grace b. 12 Sep 1913, m. Theodore Burrack of Arlington. Children: Gary, and Judy.
Raymond b. 17 Nov 1916, d. 25 Dec 1916.
Joan b. 7 Aug 1928, m. Carroll Oelke. Children: Jane, and Kristine.

Emilie and Will retired from the farm in 1938, and they moved to Farmersburg. Emilie died 15 October 1968 at the Postville Hospital, and she was interred in National Cemetery, National, Iowa. She was survived by her husband, Will, and by four of her five children.
